Re: Emergency rule in Turkey

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean: The last visit to the region under emergency rule in Turkey was made by our Ambassador in November 1996. He visited Diyarbakir. Mardin and Midyat and was able to converse with contacts in Turkey. He was accompanied to some, but not all calls by a Turkish security escort. The subject of village clearances is one which every visit to the region addresses. The next visit to the region is planned for early September again by Turkish-speaking staff. Our Embassy is in regular contact by telephone with human rights and other organizations in the region. (14.10.97)

Re: Heroin traffic from Turkey

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean: We are deeply concerned about the flow of heroin to the UK the great majority of which is produced in or transits Turkey from opium poppy grown in South West Asia. We work closely with our EU partners and are also developing valuable collaboration with the Turkish authorities to tackle drug trafficking and target the criminals behind it. We are following with interests the Turkish investigations into alleged links between parliamentarians and people involved in the illicit drug trade. (14.10.97)
